It’s almost impossible to visit Barcelona without coming across Antoni Gaudí’s work. Perhaps his most famous though is the one that is still being built. The Sagrada Família has divided critics since Gaudí revealed his plans but remains Barcelona’s most visited attraction.Read More

Barcelona has plenty of fantastic examples of modernist architecture, but perhaps one of the most beautiful is the Palau de la Música Catalana. Lavishly decorated with sculpture, mosaic and glass, the fabulous Palau has been the home of the Orfeó Català for nearly 100 years.Read More

Lived in London for goodness knows how many years… and never knew about Drummond Street 😋
This spring, I spent a lot of time talking and walking (and eating) on Drummond Street, learning about its South Asian heritage and the people who make it special. Thanks @elliecobb1 for my first @BBC_Travel story about a London street with so much heart. https://www.bbc.com/travel/article/20210907-londons-most-authentic-indian-food
Thorn Tree Forum on @lonelyplanet website was the biggest missed opportunity of all in travel media in the last 25 years. Now it is completely gone, what a huge pity. https://couchfish.substack.com/p/couchfish-turning-community-into by @travelfish
See Cornwall as never before through its annual festivals. It reveals ancient history, customs, legends and traditions that still have an important part to play in Cornwall’s unique way of life.
Think it’s time to start building our ‘Must visit restaurants in Bangkok’ list. Sooo much awesome food to look forward to! 😋
New Sunday, new restaurant, Cholos Mexican. Fish and pork tacos sooo delicious. Reminds me of the Taco Bus in Tampa and their California Tacos. With an afternoon Margarita.
Remember when the only travel struggles were time off and cash flow.
I miss those days
